  • 108 Bead Vaijayanti Mala with Rudrak Guru Bead (VMG)
    Vaijayanti Mala with Rudrak Guru Bead - 108 Beads plus Rudrak Guru Bead
     
    Unique Seeds found only in the forests around Mathura - the land of Krishna. Associated with love & victory over any adversity, the mala made of these vaijanti beads was believed to be a favorite of Lord Krishna. The beads are beautiful, smooth and shiny of white & whitish grey color. They are slightly elongated, shaped more or less like tear drops. They feel tremendously soothing to turn while japa and also very attractive to wear. While doing japa, common mantras upon Krishna or Lord Vishnu are invoked while turning this mala.  
     
    As per ancient texts Krishna made a mala for Radha out of these seeds, as did Ram for Sita. Vishnu gave this mala to Skanda at his installation as commander-in-chief for increasing his strength. 

    Japa Nam - Repeating God's Name
    Japa Nam - repeating God's nameIn order to focus one's mind on God, Babaji taught people to chant the ancient mantra Om Namah Shivaya. It is a Sanskrit phrase which means something like "I surrender to/bow to/take refuge in God," or "Lord, Thy will be done." The Name of God used in this mantra is Lord Shiva, the Supreme Manifestation of God. Constant repetition of the mantra (japa) focuses the mind on God - opens the heart and mind to God - and stops, or reduces, the tendency of one's mind to constantly plan (the future), worry (about the past), daydream (illusion), or otherwise idle away in essentially useless activity.
     
    Repeating God's Name of Om Namah Shivaya is a protection and a purification of the consciousness. It is like a clear running stream, constantly washing and renewing the mind for higher purpose. Babaji's main purpose for re-appearing is to reform the hearts and minds of people. He comes to remove confusion and evil from mankind. Shri Babaji once said: "The mind can be purified only by japa. This is the only medicine for the disease of the mind. While your mind and heart are impure, how can God live in your heart? The water to clean your heart is the Name of God. Teach everyone to repeat the Name of God -- everywhere."
     
    The mind that is generally focused on God's Name(s) responds, when the need arises, spontaneously to perform its required functions quickly, easily and well. Babaji emphasized Om Namah Shivaya but also gave other mantras on some occasions. The essence of his instruction is "Repeat God's Name." Shri Babaji said that when the great destruction comes to the world, those who believe in and worship God sincerely, and especially those who repeat His Name, will be saved by the power of the mantra. "God's Name is more powerful than a thousand atomic and hydrogen bombs."
     
    How to perform Japa
    Usually, japa is performed on a mala (prayer beads, 108 beads per strand, like a rosary). In the morning, upon waking from sleep, a bath is taken immediately (pour water over all the body from a bucket with a cup). After bath and dressing in your prayer clothes, you sit peacefully in front of your altar. You touch the mala only with the right hand. You hold the beads without using the index finger (index finger is known as the "ego" finger so you leave the ego out of this). You begin where the mala has one larger bead and a tassle; you say one mantra per bead, working the mala around between thumb and middle finger. Once you have completed the 108 repetitions, you turn the mala around and go back the same direction you came. The large bead at the end is called the "guru" bead, so you "don't cross the guru," you keep turning the mala around and going back over the beads the opposite direction. Since 5 is a Shiva number, it is good to do a minimum of 5 rounds of the mala at a sitting. This is done morning and evening.
     
    Japa Nam is also accomplished by constantly repeating the Name of God while working, eating, walking, and everything you do in a day, without always using the mala. When you repeat the Name of God while working, it is also called Karma Yoga.

  • Haidakhan Aarati eBook - Transliterated With Instruction (ARTIEBOOK)
    Haidakhan Arati At Universal Peace Center eBook - Transliterated With Instruction

    This eBook provides instruction, transliterated mantras and prayers as well as notations which help understanding the ceremony.  This material represents Aarati done to Shri Babaji as done in Herakhan.  We also offer Aarati audio files in downloadable and/or CD formats.  Using this eBook together with the audio version is very powerful.  This eBook is part of the Haidakhandi Spiritual Practices Series. 
     
    A general description of Aarati:
     
    Aarati is a Hindu religious ritual of worship in which light from wicks soaked in ghee (purified butter) or camphor is offered to one or more deities. Aarati also refers to the songs sung in praise of the deity, when lamps are being offered.
     
    It is performed during almost all Hindu ceremonies and occasions. It involves the circulating of an "Aarati plate" or "Aarati lamp" around a person or deity and is generally accompanied by the singing of songs in praise of that Deva or person (many versions exist). In doing so, the plate or lamp is supposed to acquire the power of the deity. The priest circulates the plate or lamp to all those present. They cup their down-turned hands over the flame and then raise their palms to their forehead – the purificatory blessing, passed from the Deva's image to the flame, has now been passed to the devotee.
     
    The purpose of performing Aarati is the waving of lighted wicks before the Deities in a spirit of humility and gratitude, wherein faithful followers become immersed in God's divine form. It symbolises the five elements:
     
    •         Ether (akash)
    •         Wind (vayu)
    •         Fire (agni)
    •         Water (jal)
    •         Earth (pruthvi)

    Morning Arati At Haidakhan


     
    Aarati is a daily worship service performed to the Supreme Deity in the form of the Deity personified or to a statue, a picture, or other symbol of God. In this prayer ceremony, offerings are made of fire, incense, ghee (clarified butter), camphor, flowers, rice, sandal paste (chandan), vermillion paste (kumkum), water, etc.  In the temple worship, offerings to the statue, assumed to be a living presence of the Deity, are also made of a seat, ceremonial bath, clothing and food. 
     
    Fire plays a central role, symbolically removing the darkness of ignorance existing between God and self. Shri Shri 1008 Shri Bhagwan Herakhan Wale Baba, known as "Babaji" to his devotees, is the Divine Light who is worshipped.
     
    The prayers appeal to His grace for fulfilment of all desires and to dispel the darkness of ignorance of the Self. He is recognised as the Supreme Reality personified: Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara together, who performs the three functions of creation, maintenance and destruction of the universe. All their abilities and powers are united in Him, the Master, Lord, Creator, Protector of the universe, the Supreme Deity, Samba Sada Shiva, who has taken on human form for the salvation of the world. It is He who encompasses the entire universe, who is the Absolute Being permeating all things and creatures, who resides in the centre of the heart, shining like a bright, pure crystal, who is eternally omniscient, conscious and blissful, radiating joy, an ocean of grace. It is this Ultimate Divinity to whom the Aarati is offered and in whom the worshiper seeks refuge.
     
    "Arati" literally translated means dispeller of darkness. By singing the songs of the Aarati devotional service, we are shedding light upon our darkness. In Sanskrit, darkness is the same word as ignorance.
     
    The Haidakhan Aarati was cognised by the great saint, Shri Mahendra Maharaj. Mahendra dedicated his entire life to preparing the way for the reappearance of Shri Haidakhan Babaji. He travelled all over India for decades, teaching people the devotional service and establishing ashrams and temples dedicated to Babaji.
     
    He unceasingly prayed to Babaji, begging him to return to the earth in physical form for the upliftment of humanity. Amazingly, in 1969 Babaji appeared to Mahendra and promised him he would take form, even showing him what the form would be. This word from Babaji satisfied Mahendra, and he died shortly thereafter, not even sticking around to experience the physical presence of Shri Babaji, thereby enjoying the fruits of his labours. He had performed this service for the benefit of others, not for himself.
     
    Babaji did as promised and made Himself known about a year later, in 1970.
     
    Shri Shastriji, when asked when Babaji will return again, has often said, When one of us has the devotion, dedication and commitment of Mahendra Maharaj. Is there such a person among us?
     
    In Sanskrit, the vibration of each word matches its meaning. The words of the Aarati are a specific formula. The vibration of the Aarati transforms our own vibration to a level that is "in synch" with Babaji and brings Him to us. Our vibration gets closer to His and this makes it easier for Him to be with us. Those who want to experience more of Babaji's guidance and healing vibration have a formula to do that: the Aarati.
     
    Even hearing the Aarati on tape, before memorizing it, will raise a person's vibration and be a great comfort. Once a person learns and memorizes the Aarati, to the point where the mouth keeps singing the next verse without even thinking about it, there is a wealth of information and problem-solving which happens during the Aarati, similar to what is experienced in the deepest of meditation. Divine Inspiration takes place, pictures come to mind about what the next step is for a project, and solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems appear. It is magical. The connection from the Superconscious (God Self, Inner Voice) to the Conscious Mind is opened and ready for action. Aarati is like entering the "Silence" that all religions mention, where God gets to talk to you instead of only a one-way communication.
     
    Aarati is sung in each of Babaji's temples throughout the world in the morning and evening, just after sunrise and sunset. It is the perfect way to remove the veil of sleep in the morning and to lay to rest all the activities of the day in the evening. In spiritual community at an ashram, it is the 'glue' which holds the diverse group together. This makes it possible to work together even though there are bound to be personality differences.
     
    To know yourself better, to clear the way for Divine Communication, to experience the healing of Shri Babaji's Presence, turn to Aarati, the dispeller of darkness.

  • Adjustable Rudraksha Bead Knotted Wrist Mala (18-rudrak-wm)
    Adjustable Rudraksha Bead Knotted Wrist Mala (adjustable string to loosen and tighten)

    This is a Rudrak bead adjustable wrist mala which can be adjusted to 8"- 12".  It expands and contracts as needed. 16, 17 or 18 beads, these are manufactured with the intent to be adjustable around the wrist, providing the enormous benefit of contact with the Rudrak beads and the size of the wrist rather than as a counting wrist mala.  
     
    Enjoy the health and spiritual benefits of the Rudrak beads against your skin.
     
    It is said that Rudraksha evokes power in the body, which fights against diseases, thus improving overall health.  It is also said that the wearing of Rudraksha promotes calm.  

    It is said that Lord Shiva sat in open-eyed meditation for 1000 years. When he finally blinked, the tears that streamed from his eyes became Rudraksha seeds (rud means tears). These sacred seeds take 25 years to mature. They are used in Shiva mantras, as well as Ganesh and Bhairava, but anything recited with them will be enhanced. Also reputed to help blood pressure problems.
     
    Authentic Rudraksha beads have been found to boost confidence and inner strength and to help with a wide range of mental and physical problems. Buddha wore them, Gandhi wore them, and the Dalai Lama wears them. So did Yehudi Menuhin and Osho Rajneesh.
     
    Rudraksha beads have been worn by Asian yogis and monks because of their interaction with body and mind to foster the tranquility and concentration necessary during extended periods of meditation.  Modern medical research has proven that Rudraksha beads have electro-magnetic properties that have a beneficial influence on the cardiovascular and central nervous systems.

    Japa Nam is also accomplished by constantly repeating the Name of God while working, eating, walking, and everything you do in a day, without always using the mala. When you repeat the Name of God while working, it is also called Karma Yoga.

    Yantra Meditation from Chopra Center:
     
    As you look at the yantra, allow your eyes to focus on its center. This dot in the center is called the Bindu, which represents the unity that underlies all the diversity of the physical world.
     
    Now allow your eyes to see the triangle that encloses the bindu. The downward pointing triangle represents the feminine creative power, while the upward facing triangle represents male energy.
     
    Allow your vision to expand to include the circles outside of the triangles. They represent the cycles of cosmic rhythms. The image of the circle embodies the notion that time has no beginning and no end. The farthest region of space and the innermost nucleus of an atom both pulsate with the same rhythmic energy of creation. That rhythm is within you and without you.
     
    Bring your awareness to lotus petals outside the circle. Notice that they are pointing outwards, as if opening. They illustrate the unfolding of our understanding. The lotus also represents the heart, the seat of the Self. When the heart opens, understanding comes.
     
    The square at the outside of the yantra represents the world of form, the material world that our senses show us, the illusion of separateness, of well defined edges and boundaries. At the periphery of the figure are four T-shaped portals, or gateways. Notice that they point toward the interior of the yantra, the inner spaces of life. They represent our earthly passage from the external and material to the internal and sacred.
     
    Now take a moment to gaze into the yantra, letting the different shapes and patterns emerge naturally, allowing your eyes to be held loosely in focus. Gaze at the center of the yantra on the page. Without moving your eyes, gradually begin to expand your field of vision. Continue expanding your vision until you are taking in information from greater than 180 degrees. Notice that all this information was there all along, you just became aware of it. Now slowly reverse the process by re-focusing back to the center of the yantra. Now gently close your eyes. You may still see the yantra in your mind’s eye. The patterns of creativity represented by these primordial shapes express the fundamental forces of nature. They govern the world and they govern you.
